Athletics Australia has today confirmed that the AIS Athletics Track in Bruce (Belconnen) has been reintroduced to the National Australian Athletics Tour in 2014-15.
For the first time since the Australia Cup was disbanded in 2010, Canberra joins Hobart (TAS), Newcastle (NSW), Adelaide (SA), Perth (WA), Brisbane (Qld), Sydney (NSW) and Melbourne (Vic) on the tour.
Performances at the Canberra Track Classic will go towards ensuring selection to the Australian Flame later in the year,” Andrew Matthews, the Athletics Australia Competitions Manager, said. This is great news as it will ensure a huge selection of the nation’s best athletes competing at the AIS against our hometown champions including local Belconnen athletes and Commonwealth Games representatives Martin Dent and Emily Brichacek.
